How to make Filipino Beef Empanada

Empanada is a savory turnover filled with meat that trace their origins to Galicia (Spain) and Portugal. Empanada is a Spanish word meaning meat pie.   Filipino Empanadas are either baked or fried like the Vigan Empanadas from the northern part of the Philippines.  Empanadas make great appetizers and finger foods for a meal on the go.

In this Filipino Beef Empanada we used lean ground beef, you can also use shredded beef but it takes longer to prepare or  substitute any filling you like.  Just like the famous Chicken Empanada, the Beef is cooked with vegetables like potatoes, bell pepper and green peas, with raisins.

    I tried several of your recipes that are my favorite foods that you posted here, and all of them I tried were successful very delicious to the point na wala talaga akong masabi kundi MASARAP…TALAGA!!! all your recipes posted here comes out delicious after cooking…so I just wonder where you get the exact measurements of recipes. Do you have a major source where you get the exact measurements or some people contributes to this site and you pick the best taste before you post? Im just really really curios
    Cooking is my passion thing is I never got to use this half my life only now am 50 and also found this site 2 years ago and my interest sparked when I tried a couple of your recipe i got here and were successful now I really want to master my favorite dish and make it into perfection. So thank you very much guys who runs and own this website. You woke up the hidden chef in me becoz of you Im now considering to use and practice my talent.

    The next line up of foods here I want to make is Empanada and Siopao.. and i will see how it will be. But I trust this site hence binabalikbalikan ko. I already made a booklet out of my tried recipes I make it as a guide everytime I cook my choice food. Hope you will not get tired posting.

    I have a request though, I hope you can post TORTA recipe the torta that barrio folks serve as sweets during barrio fiestas. I really like to have a torta recipe. I think its a local muffin Filipinos grew up with but long time forgotten i want to revive it through this site. I want a special torta recipe if possible.

    Thank you very much.
